LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 25, 2014) — The University of Kentucky Department of Theatre wears a coat of many colors in its season closing production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” The larger-than-life musical will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. April 25-26, and at 2 p.m. April 26-27 at the Lexington Opera House.

 

The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable, the first collaboration of Broadway dream team Andrew Lloyd Webber (music) and Tim Rice (lyrics). Set to a mix of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.

 

Tickets for the play are $20 for students and $25 for general admission. Tickets can be purchased at The Lexington Opera House Ticket Office, by calling 859-233-3535 or by visiting www.lexingtonoperahouse.com/events.
